Easy Strawberry Basil Margarita Recipe

So the strawberry basil margarita recipe I referenced in this post involved waiting a long time for the basil leaves to infuse and such....and well, when I want a strawberry basil margarita, I want a strawberry basil margarita. Waiting overnight is not an option. So I decided to take matters into my own hands.
In addition to the strawberries, basil, lemon juice and ice, I added a splash of orange juice to add sweetness. I also added 1/4 cup of tequila. Blend everything but the ice together first. Then add the ice and puree it in the blender until smooth. Yum! xo JA

    1. I made it last weekend with sugar and it was too sugary for me. I like it better with a hint of orange juice!And you're right, added bonus that it's not (too) bad for me! :]
